Hockey Night in Canada 60th Anniversary Feature Hockey Night in Canada is the longest running program in Canadian television history, dating back to 1952. (It goes back to the 1920s on radio.) To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic show in 2012, the talented people at HNIC put together this terrific tribute. For folks who don't quite understand Canadians' passion about hockey, this feature might help explain it.

Vanishing TV Character - Bub OCasey My Three Sons was one of televisions's longest-running sitcoms, airing 380 episodes over 12 seasons. It first aired on ABC from 1960 through 1965 and then on CBS from 1965 through 1972. The premise of the show was that Stephen Douglas (played by Fred MacMurray) was a widowed aeronautical engineer with three sons whose ages spanned about 12 years. We never learn much about his deceased wife--not even her first name. With Stephen Douglas often busy, his father-in-law, crusty but good-natured Bub O'Casey, was brought into the family fold to be the equivalent of the 'mother': the person who would cook, clean, shop, do laundry, mend clothes, and so forth. Bub was played by William Frawley who had earlier gained TV fame as Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy in the 1950s. The show was immediately popular but never quite managed to crack the Nielsen top 10 in ratings. Fred MacMurray, who was once the highest paid actor in Hollywood, only agreed to be in the show if he could shoot all his scenes in three months. ABC agreed to this unusual demand. This meant the scripts for an entire season had to be prepared so MacMurray's scenes could all be shot over the space of three months and then pieced together with scenes involving only the other cast members who had a standard shooting schedule. Four seasons into the show, a problem arose: Frawley's health was declining to the point where ABC could not get him insured in case it had to pay for an entire season of episodes to be re-shot with a replacement if Frawley died or was incapacitated by illness. Thus ABC felt it was financially prudent to unceremoniously drop Frawley from the cast midway through the 1964-65 season. (It was explained that Bub had gone to Ireland to look after his 104-year-old Aunt Katie.) Enter William Demarest, who took on the role of Charley O'Casey--Bub's seafaring brother. He was persuaded to become the new Mr. Mom at the Douglas home and proved to be even more grumpy than Bub, but just as lovable deep down. Bub was seldom mentioned again once Uncle Charley entered the scene. Apparently Frawley resented Demarest for replacing him in the cast. Because only the 1965 to 1970 episodes are widely syndicated, many newer fans of My Three Sons are utterly unaware of Bub O'Casey. The insurance concerns were very valid: Frawley died suddenly in March 1966 at age 79.

Frank Gifford Passes at Age 84 NFL Hall of Famer Frank Gifford died Sunday morning of natural causes at the age of 84, one week before what would have been his 85th birthday. Gifford played his entire career for the New York Giants and was a star wide receiver and running back, winning the 1956 MVP award as he led the Giants to the NFL title that year. An eight-time Pro Bowler, Gifford retired in 1964 and went on to become an influential sports broadcaster, becoming a fixture of Monday Night Football for decades.

Ozzie and Harriet Openings Final Season The 1965-66 season was the last for The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet. It began on radio in 1949 and moved to television in 1952. It ran for a remarkable 14 seasons. It remains the longest running non-animated sitcom in American history. Here are two slightly different opening to episodes from that final season--when the show was finally broadcast in color.

Ashlee Simpson On Saturday Night Live In 2004 Simpson gave one of the most awkward performances in TV history when she was caught lip-syncing to one of her songs. She then tried dancing a jig before running off the stage.

Bannister-Landy Miracle Mile 1954 One of the most famous track-and-field events of all time occurred on August 7, 1954. In May 1954 England's 25-year-old Roger Bannister became the first runner to record a sub-four-minute mile when he ran a 3:59.4 race at Oxford. About six weeks later, Australia's John Landy, age 24, claimed the world record by running the mile in an unheard of 3:58 flat in Finland. The two men would meet head-to-head in the British Empire Games in Vancouver in August 1954 in a race as eagerly anticipated as any in history. Landy had a reputation for establishing an insurmountable early lead in races and coasting to wins. Bannister, however, was known for possessing a strong finishing kick. This rare clip is from the CBC archives in Canada; it shows the entire race. Two things to watch: Look at how the front-running Landy constantly looks behind him to see where Bannister is. Also notice that every activity on the infield came to a standstill as all eyes were glued to the "Miracle Mile" race unfolding on the track.

Mickey Mantle Avoids DP - 1960 WS This is one of the smartest baserunning plays you'll ever see: It's Game #7 of the 1960 World Series. The New York Yankees are trailing the Pittsburgh Pirates by one run (9-8) with one out in the top of the ninth inning. Gil McDougald is on third base. Mickey Mantle is on first base. Yogi Berra hits a sharp ground ball to Pittsburgh first baseman Rocky Nelson. Nelson steps on first base for the second out of the inning. Mickey Mantle appears to be a dead duck for the Series-ending out, but with the force play now removed, he dives back into first base, eluding the surprised Nelson's tag. McDougald scored the game-tying run. (As any baseball fan worth his salt knows, the Pirates won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning when Bill Mazeroski led off with a home run.)
